ABOUT THE STOREFRONTS PROGRAM
In 2010, an innovative consortium of city and neighborhood organizations inaugurated the Storefronts program in Seattle’s Pioneer Square and International District neighborhoods. The initiative sought to address high vacancy rates and vanishing artist spaces in these neighborhoods by activating empty storefronts with vibrant local art and creative projects.
Now a core program of Shunpike, Storefronts continues to support our creative community and our urban neighborhoods and businesses by providing opportunities for artists to do what they do best – create dynamic, engaging works that reach out to passersby, activate our built environment, and function as an incubator for our arts ecology, entrepreneurial projects, and urban revitalization.
